The OzAsia Festival is an annual event held in September/October, and is presented by the Adelaide Festival Centre. Australian and Asian artists present music, dance, and theatre shows, food exhibitions, forums, films, and special events. This year, the OzAsia Festival begins on September 2nd and finishes on September 17th.
FEAST by Design will be an unforgettable dining experience held at the Adelaide Festival Centre, Banquet Room on September 3rd. Participants will indulge in an OzAsia inspired three course 'feast' with a menu designed by Simon Bryant, best known from ABC TV's Cook And The Chef, and Adam Liaw, 2010 Masterchef Australia winner. The menu will be matched with wines from O'Leary Walker.
Guests will be surrounded by an installation of contemporary furniture designed by Khai Liew and fashion designed by Alistair Trung.
Khai Liew is an Adelaide-based designer and artist who creates work characterised by a fusion of old and new, regional and international, drawn from his cultural heritage and experience as a conservator. Liew's work has been showcased in various institutions and collections and was the recipient of the 2010 South Australian of the Year Arts Award.
Alistair Trung is a Sydney-based designer who founded his label in 2000 after graduating from Sydney's University of Technology. The distinctive design language fused with cross cultural influences of Trung's creations meet the emotional and physical needs of clientele and have been a success across the three boutiques in Sydney and Melbourne.
Food writer and broadcaster, Annette Shun Wah, will host and guide guests through the feast and surrounding art on display.
Tickets are available for $169 through BASS and more information on the event, as well as a look into what will be on the menu for the night, is available from the OzAsia website.
This sounds like a good event, and I'm sure there will be some very tasty food on offer. Unfortunately I think I have a few too many commitments to be able to spend $169 to go along, but it does sound like a great part of the OzAsia festival.
